performance or lack thereof. congressman ryan looking to boost the romney campaign's recent rise in the polls tonight. the debates are not usually game changers but analysts say this year could be an exception. carl cameron is fouling the presidential candidate. but, first, to ed henry on road with us here in danville. high stakes for the vice president after the president's performance, in doubt, right? >>reporter: that is right. because of the president's flop this puts more pressure tonight on vice president wide biden. the president, who is campaigning in miami, telephoned the vice president to wish him good luck. democrats are counting on him to shake up the momentum. that is going to an tough task tonight when you talk to political analysts. >> the vice president is going to come out and try to be defensive. the vice president, a strength of his, is his emotion and passion. that is both a positive and sometimes a weakness. you will see him come out and defend the president, not necessarily the debate performance from the other night but he will defend what the president has done. >>repo
, with four new polls showing governor romney is in the lead. the latest reuters poll shows he is leading the president by three points. another poll shows mitt romney ahead by three point and gallup show as two-point spread, romney in the lead and the investors business daily shows governor romney leading by one point. now bringing in our campaign insiders, former republican congressman, john leboutillier, and form pollster for president carter, pat caddell, and former pollster for bill clinton, doug schoen. is romney the frontrunner? >>doug: it is moving that way. he has the momentum but we need tuesday night and a good debate performance for that to be confirmed. right now the race is too close to call. >>gregg: pat, the reuters poll came up obama leading romney 59 to 39 among early voters. >> this is an online poll. it is a small number of people but it is being hyped today by a lot news organization who have stopped during -- doing their state polls now that obama is not doing so well. clearly the obama campaign is better organized and we do not know what it means in florida and nort
news polls showing mitt romney got a little bub after the debate. hoping to gain momentum when he and congressman paul ryan face off. both are expected to come out swinging. here's a question a lot of folks are asking. can a vp debate really be a game changer? let's ask presidential historian nick ragone. thank you for coming up here. can it be a game changer? >> historically it has not been. if you remember began quail had a bad performance against lloyd benson. dukakis won big. dick cheney abodid a nice job against edwards. for the most part people vote for the top of the ticket. in this case maybe vice president biden can change the conversation which would be a win for obama if he could do that. >> who has more to lose going into this tonight? oo evening paul ryan does even though he is inexperienced. it is a huge opportunity to introduce himself. he needs to hold his own. he needs to be seen as somebody who can step in for romney. there's a bit of a stature gap he needs to close that. >> that could also work in his favor as we saw when dick cheney and john edwards were togeth
countries. >>> according to the latest polls, governor romney is gaining some ground in the key swing states of ohio, florida, and virginia. crowds at his campaign stops are growing and poll numbers are inching upwards hi since his performance in the first presidential debate. no republican has ever won the presidency without winning ohio. according to a real clear politics average, the president is less than a point ahead in virginia, and romney is leading the president in florida by three points. >>> the family of elizabeth marriott is asking for help to find the 19-year-old's body. the university of new hampshire student vanished last tuesday night in dover, new hampshire. police say they believe elizabeth is dead and they believe they have the man who killed her. 29 yea year old seth mazzaglia n custody. police are working to recover her body but say they have credible evidence that the suspect disposed of her remains in new hampshire. >>> we're now going to check in with one of our top house members who is keeping an eye on the events in libya as they unfold. as we have here' hearings o
this week. here is charles cars. >> it's very felling, the pugh poll has romney head slightly beyond the margin of error. we were talking about the ones who are ex steamily likely to vote. romney among all the voters are extremely likely to vote, is up by 6 and three weeks ago he was down by 3. that's a nine-point swing among people who surely will be out there on election day. so i think right now the race is tied with romney still, i think, having some of the momentum from the debate and i think the rest of this story will be determined by the remaining debates. >> brian: i think what's interesting is that not only did he move ahead in most of the polls, and almost everybody, including president obama agrees that he lost debate. president obama has done after and all his people calling him a liar is unprecedented. >> steve: that's desperate. >> brian: it's not with a reagan did after he lost or george bush. i went back and asked the brain room what were some of the quotes. they were like we lost, but he's a better debater. not you're a liar and performer. having said that, there is
in pennsylvania, by a polling firm i trust, john mclaughlin that shows that romney is defeating obama in pennsylvania by 49-forty46. smith's running very close to casey for the senate. ryan needs to keep that momentum up approximate this election could be over. i think the big thing is the contrast between the politician and a policy person. a young person and an old person. i think on both scores, ryan will really help romney. we have to realize how much of obama's appeal is generational. when you you are putting on a v.p. debate with a 25 or 25-year, i guess, difference in age, and one who is kind of a haggard regular old-time bomb baftic politician, and the other, a very incisive, sharp, focused policy person, i think that you really are going to see ryan have a tremendous edge. the other thing is that ryan wrote the romney program. this is not just a candidate for v.p., his the intellectual leader of the republican party today. for him to be up there debating in a political debate is like, you know, it's like mickey mantle coming to bat because he -- he wrote all of these programs
states because he says romney will win. >> i know they polled last night. >> bill: the only reason i'm bringing that up is you were dismissing the romney momentum and some people say it shouldn't be dismissed. bob beckel. directly ahead, laura ingraham on the security embarrassment in libya. later, megyn kelly, a big affirmative action case in texas. she's in kentucky and we'll get a preview of the debate from her point of view. all that after these messages he he he he he >> bill: in the impact segment tonight, new u.s. diplomat arrived in libya to take the place of christopher steves. that as criticism mounts over the obama administration protected the americans in that country. the obama campaign is calling all of the criticism political. >> the entire reason that this has become the political topic it is is because of mitt romney and paul ryan. it's a big part of their stump speech. and as reckless and irresponsible. >> bill: with all due respect to her, that's more bologna than you could possibly fit on any sandwich. joinings from washington, fox news analyst, laura ingraham. he
. >> patti ann: after governor romney's strong debate performance last week, new polls show that the debate tightening in nearly a dozen battleground states. what does it mean in the final weeks of campaign season. jamie weanstein is co-author of the shocking inside account of obama's ambitions by an anonymous white house staffer. thank you for joining us. what does president obama need to do to get some momentum back? >> certainly on tuesday he has a chance to reverse his terrible debate performance of october 3rd. that will be another big national stage moment with millions of viewers turning in. if he can try to pick the moey l momentum away from mitt romney during that debate perhaps he can turn the tide. right now the momentum seems to be romney's favor. >> let's talk specifically about battleground states, wisconsin, pennsylvania, new hampshire and michigan were all leading in obama and now considered toss-ups. let's start with wisconsin. what is happening there? >> all those four states as you said were switched by real clear politics. in wisconsin that is where paul ryan is from, mi
